Stephen Scott Stone
Mr. Stone has always been very compassionate and concerned about my issues. He has been forthcoming regarding timelines and realistic settlement amounts. He has never told me anything that he could not deliver on and has been very honest with me. He has either answered or returned my calls in a timely manner and has made me feel I am a valued client. He has listened to my concerns, no matter how small or insignificant and addressed them all. I have always felt confident and at ease with Mr. Stone. My cases have been handled very satisfactorily for me. I would and do recommend Mr. Stone to anyone needing an attorney.

Very understanding and careing attorney
Scott was very aggressive towards setting my case and making sure my medical expenses were taken care of very promptly. He was very knowledgeable about how to handle my case and made me very confident that I would be compensated fairly for my injury. He is very easy to talk to and always made himself available when I had questions. He is the best attorney I have encountered in the Pensacola area.

Car accident at work
I had a car accident at work which involves workers comp and personal injury. Their firm was able to handle both cases for me and I was very pleased with the knowledge Mr Stone had about the whole process

Professionalism at it's best!
Stone of "Whibbs and Stone", is class act among a sea of Lawyers. His personalized attention to my problem and needs has changed my opinion of lawyers. I would recommend Stone and his firm with out pause. If you are in need of expert legal council you should contact Whibbs and Stone!

Not the usual pompous ass attorney!
Mr. Stone did an outstanding job of representing me in a workers compensation case, when I was injured at work. He was genuinely concerned for me, personally, and demonstrated compassion and caring, while guiding me through a very painful, tortuous process. He communicated with me in person, over the phone, through e-mails and regular mail. He answered my questions and addressed my concerns in a timely manner. He never exhibited any hesitancy in standing up for me, to a very large and powerful insurance company! He gave me good advice, which I mostly accepted, and we were quite successful in obtaining a good settlement from a known to be difficult, thrifty, insurance company. He never gave me unrealistic hope and was very knowledgeable in what I could expect as the outcome. I would not hesitate to recommend Mr. Scott to anyone in need of an attorney, in his areas of expertise.

I had a slip and fall with a broken bone that required extensive and very painful surgery. I completed a form online a few months before the statute of limitations for the fall was reached. I got responses from several attorneys but chose Scott Stone. He was very enthused in the beginning. It was clearly a case of negligence. I don't know whether a deadline was missed or what happened. He didn't offer an explanation just told me I wouldn't be receiving as big a settlement as originally anticipated. Then he and his para legal stopped taking my calls. I finally spoke to him and he said I would probably only receive around $5000. I asked when and he said he didn't know when exactly. That was four years ago and I haven't heard a word from him not to mention not a penny.
